BBQ Octopus: asian gazpacho, fresh apple, caramelized cauliflower, coriander
The best octopus we ever had was made by a Greek grandma in Crete. We are shocked at how tender, smoky, and unbelievably tasty it was! We did not stop until mastering this preparation with fresh octopus from Jimbaran Bay paired with an intense and aromatic Asian version of Spanish gazpacho.
